Édouard Louis ✓ 6 Review Read & download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Édouard Louis Characters Histoire de la violence A police report and the searching unflinching curiosity of memoir at its best It records not only the casual racism and homophobia of French society but also their subtle effects on lovers brothers and sisters husbands and wives It represents a great step forward for a young writer whose acuity skill and depth are unmatched by any novelist of his generation in French or Engli. On its release in 2016 Edmund White read the original text and subseuently reviewed its English version in 2018 June hardback His review for The Guardian was wholly complimentary Interesting in that Louis clearly knows the work of White and shares White s interest in autobiography I didn t have the same positive response having read the book on the strength of White s recommendationIn a fascinating dialogue between Taia and Louis in The Paris Review both outsiders both authors who have invented new names and identities Taia and Louis set themselves within a tradition of violence and resistance Baldwin and Genet What is interesting is firstly that the Baldwin they share is not Baldwin the novelist the Baldwin who wrote the blistering political novel Just Above My Head but the one who wrote essays And secondly when Genet is touched upon he is confused with Fanon so a novelist is swapped for a psychological and cultural theorist It is this tone that deadens History of Violence for me I see the theory pulling the strings I was not surprised when at a crucial stage the novel stopped abruptly for an Interlude in which Louis discussed what Faulkner had to say on p43 of Sanctuary as regards escaping a dangerous situation There are too many tricksTo begin with I thought the memoir novel a hybrid form liked by Taia and Louis was going to present multiple perspectives on the core male rape As in the fiction of Robbe Grillet the reader was going to receive constant revisions Not so The reader is given an elaborate framing device which is pushed to the point of incredulity One has to imagine that Louis has told most of the story to his sister Clara who remembers everything like her name with clarity Clara re tells this account to her silent husband as Louis listens from behind a door and interjects his view on her view of his view of the rape The memoir novel becomes a fiction commenting on its own fictiveness Of course this is central to Louis concern with fiction whose story is it and who has the right to tell a story And what kind of story When Louis relates the rape to the police they are not impressed they can t believe the flat ending uite knowingly the matter ends with uncomfortable parallels the rapist s bathetic orgasm stands against a story without a satisfactory climax The novel memoir is a uest for form the correct form for a writer whose intellectualism sets him above his class memoir and whose hatred of the bourgeoisie makes him anti intellectual novel Intriguing but contrived

Édouard Louis ✓ 6 Review Read & download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Édouard Louis Characters Histoire de la violence A gripping autobiographical novel the best work yet from the most talked about French writer of his generationOn Christmas Eve 2012 in Paris the novelist Édouard Louis was raped and almost murdered by a man he had just met This act of violence left Louis shattered; its aftermath made him a stranger to himself and sent him back to the village the family and the past he had swo. Now Shortlisted for the International DUBLIN Literary Award 2020In this autobiographical novel douard Louis tells the story of how he was assaulted raped and almost strangled to death and the repercussions of this experience It s already brave to share a story like that but Louis goes even further by radically exposing and uestioning every aspect of his behavior and the behavior of the aggressor and by contrasting his own thoughts with those of his sister who holds very different opinions and his best friends Didier and Geoffrey these are obviously French star sociologist Didier Eribon and sociologist and philosopher Geoffroy de Lagasnerie Apart from confronting his own near death experience Louis ventures into asking uestions about the nature of violence in general and about the dynamics that lead to the escalation of violence His assault started as a harmless one night stand which slowly turned sour and then got out of control How did this happen And how did it change LouisThe narrative is put together as a montage that combines the above mentioned standpoints of the sister Didier Geoffrey and the author himself but always told through the lense of Louis It s cleverly done and manages to digress in several directions without losing grip of the main narrative threadThis book was a huge sensation in France and Germany and when reading some French articles about it I learnt that the real aggressor was actually caught and convicted He then sued Louis because of the book but lost as it is impossible to identify him solely based on Louis novel It is great to see how many fresh and daring books are currently coming out of France and while I would not say that History of Violence is a success in every aspect it is certainly brave thought provoking and intelligent
